They can take our lives, but they can never take our FREEEEEDOM ... to make-out in the rain. That's the top-line lesson we're gleaning from a new, EXCLUSIVE clip from the upcoming post-apocalyptic romance "The Host," out March 29.

Set to the strains of Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" (a track you should recognize from the trailer), we meet Melanie Stryder (played by Saoirse Ronan), her brother Jamie Stryder (played by Chandler Canterbury) and her boyfriend Jared Howe (played by Max Irons)— a few of the remaining people on Earth after an invading race commandeered human bodies for their own use. But it's not all bad because there's still love. (And by "love" we mean "steamy, steamy kisses.")

Vampire DiariesWhile "The Vampire Diaries" writers have never treated anyone like they were sacred, we were pretty shocked when Elena's brother, Jeremy, was killed off last month. It was a pretty gutsy move for the show to make—considering he was the only person really keeping the vamp from showing her fangs.

When MTV News' Tami Katzoff spoke to writer/producer Jose Molina about the earth-shattering decision to off Jeremy, he explained why little Gilbert was the character that just had to go, leaving us with Steven McQueen withdrawals.

"You never kill off a main character without giving it a lot of thought, but one of the things I always loved about 'TVD' as a fan was how fearless it was. When I joined the show this season, I wanted to keep the stakes as high as ever, and it felt like Jeremy's death would have the most impact," he explained. "Not that it was remotely a unilateral decision on my part —it was one that Julie and the writing staff made together—but I personally felt like it was a good move, and I'm very happy that I got to pull the proverbial trigger!"

Finnick OdairHold on to your tridents, Finnick fans! As part of Lionsgate's roll out of super-sumptuous Capitol Portraits featuring our favorite "Catching Fire" crew members, Hollywood Crush has the distinct pleasure of unveiling the visage of District 4's hunkiest of hunks (played by actor Sam Claflin)! The only thing that could make this EXCLUSIVE even better? If Finnick were fitted in his barely-there gold fishnet costume from the Tribute Parade. But all in due time.

And that's not to say the outfit featured here doesn't reflect the tribute's aquatic roots. In fact, there's something positively pirate-esque about Finnick's unbuttoned-down-to-there linen shirt, flouncy evergreen pants and lace-up boots. Let's just say, he's shivering our timbers something good.

Click past the jump to see the full Capitol Portrait!

People of Panem: Your invitation to the 74th annual Victory Tour has arrived! President Coriolanus Snow, himself, issued the announcement (via The Capitol PN), encouraging all citizens to meet and greet winning District 12 tributes Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). And, boy, don't they look pretty in their dress whites.

This is the first bit of "Catching Fire" promotional material we've feasted on in the New Year (that is if you're not counting those fine pictures of Finnick), following the motion poster's fiery debut on the internet back in November.

Let's be honest: Emmett Cullen doesn't always get his due in the big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's "The Twilight Saga." But, thankfully, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" director Bill Condon had the good sense to leave in one of the vampire's most beloved moments—in which he cavalierly agrees to arm wrestle newborn Bella...and things don't go as expected.

It's a moment, in fact, that earned praise from both Stephenie and Bill, especially as it relates to Kristen's portrayal of the bloodsucker. And you can hear it all by watching our EXCLUSIVE featurette, which we're debuting in advance of the DVD/Blu-ray release on March 2.

The Fault in Our StarsHazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters' heart-wrenching romance is one step closer to big-screen immortality, as the "The Fault in Our Stars" adaptation has found its director.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the honors go to Josh Boone, whose directorial debut, "Stuck in Love" (formerly "Writers"), premiered at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and will open on April 19. And, as it turns out, the auteur has his own special history with the work, as it provided solace in the wake of a friend's death.

"I feel the weight and responsibility to get this right and give his readers and devoted fans as pure a translation as possible," Josh told THR. "We hope to create a little infinity within this film that fans can revisit over and over."
